I'm Melanie Vangopoulos.

My name is Melanie.  I'm an Investment Manager and CFA® Charterholder. 

My greatest passions in life are investing and inspiring others to their own greatness.  

My Work

I've enjoyed a Wall Street career that has spanned over two decades, from Trading to Portfolio Management. 

My investment strategy is primarily focused on the Technology, Media and Telecom sectors.   

Education

I took my first Economics class at the age of 16 while attending high school in Rhodes, Greece.  The light bulb went on for me and I immediately knew I wanted to pursue an education in Economics.  I graduated from Rutgers University with Bachelors degrees in both Economics and Italian, with Phi Beta Kappa academic honors.  

I recently received a Certificate in Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania.  

I am currently pursuing a Certificate in Climate Change and Sustainable Investing through the EDHEC Business School. 

Principles I Live By

Do what you love.  

The only limitations are in your mind.  When you synchronize your beliefs with your desires, and take aligned action, you can achieve or do anything. 

My Creative Side

Photography

I fell in love with photography at the age of 10, while on vacation with my father along the coast of California.  He showed me how to operate his Canon SLR and I've had a camera in my hand at all times since! 

I've since studied Photography at FIT, ICP, and The New School, all in New York City (while working on Wall St!).

Photography is my creative outlet.  It's my way of capturing the beauty in people, places, and moments.
